How do I sync or pair my drone and remote properly?
Once the drone and controller have fresh batteries installed, both should show blinking lights. Push the left stick of the controller all the way up and all the way back down again.

How do I know if the Barometric Pressure Sensor is active or inactive?
The Barometric Pressure Sensor (or Altitude Lock) switch is located at the left side of the left joystick. It is turned off when the switch is rolled and locked upwards. This should disable the left joystick’s up-down motion being spring-loaded, giving it a loose feel. On the other hand, the Barometric Pressure Sensor is turned on when the switch is rolled downwards. This enables the left joystick’s up-down motion being spring-loaded so it will always return to the center.
My drone’s motors are not working or not activating even though both the drone and remote lights are solid. How do I fix this?
First is to determine if the Barometric Pressure Sensor (or Altitude Lock) is activated or not. If it is on, which can also be determined if the left joystick’s up-down motion is spring-loaded, then you need to press and hold the Auto-Start button for 2-3 seconds until the drone lifts 2-3 feet from the ground. The Auto-Start button is the bottom left arch button of the four arch buttons at the center of the remote control. If the Barometric Pressure Sensor is off, then the motors should automatically spin when the left joystick is slowly pushed upwards.
How do I deactivate the motors when the Barometric Pressure Sensor is on? And how do I use the Auto-Land feature?
To deactivate the motors when the Barometric Pressure Sensor is on, simultaneously push both joysticks down and inwards (pointing to the power button). This will cut all power to the motors and the ship will fall to the ground if it’s still in the air. It is advisable to first have the drone descend to the ground before deactivating the motors. Alternatively, if the drone is in the air while the Barometric Pressure Sensor is on, you can press the bottom left arch button (also the Auto-Start button) for 2-3 seconds to activate the Auto-Land feature. When pressed, the drone will slowly descend to the ground. You can still use directional commands to control where the drone will land.
How do I change the Speed Modes of my drone?
To change the Speed Mode, you need to press the Speed Select button, which is the left triangular-like button at the top side of the remote control. The default Speed Mode upon start-up (including restarting the drone) is Speed 1. Press once to change from one speed to another. To determine which Speed Mode the drone is on, look at the lights around the Power Button. One light is for Speed 1, two lights are for Speed 2, and three lights for Speed 3.
How do I activate the T-Mode (Training Mode)?
To change the Speed Mode, you need to press and hold the Speed Select button, which is the left triangular-like button at the top side of the remote control, for 3 seconds. Once you see that all lights around the Power button lights up, that indicates that the Training Mode is activated. This will enable an invisible ceiling at approximately 2 meters and an invisible floor that prevents the drone from touching the ground. This mode creates a safe area to fly.
Can I change the flight control from 4-Channel to 3-Channel mode and vice versa?
All Star Wars drones are on 4-Channel mode and cannot be changed to 3-Channel mode.
How can I do stunts with the drone? And can I control which way it stunts to?
You can activate the stunt feature by pressing the rectangular-like buttons at the top side of the remote control. The right rectangular-like button is for a Clockwise roll and the left rectangular-like button is for a Counter-clockwise roll.
What are the three LED light bars at the center of the remote control for?
These three LED light bars are for IR/Laser Battling. It serves as the ‘Life’ of the drone and it indicates that a unit can be hit 3 times before it goes down.
How do I enter Music Mode?
To enter music mode, hold down button 2 and button 4 (both of the bottom arch buttons) for two seconds. The Life LEDs will glow blue. Push both buttons again for two seconds to exit music mode.
How do I fix unstable flight? How do I trim?
Whenever flight is unstable, check for any obstructions in between the propellers and shaft. If none, then press the Calibrate button, which is the upper right arch button on remote. For trimming, press and hold the right triangular-like button at the top side of the remote. While holding that button down, use the right joystick to trim the drone to the required direction for it to be back to its center axis.
My drone keeps flipping over. How do I fix it?
Aside from checking if there are any obstructions that might cause propeller/s to spin incorrectly, you should calibrate the drone by pressing the Calibrate button, which is the upper right arch button, to ensure that the gyros are balanced. Lastly, double check the correct propeller placements, which can be found on page 13 of your manual.
